During an upgrade from vRealize Code Stream 1.0 to vRealize Code Stream 1.2 or 2.0, existing endpoints are added to the appliance and the format of release pipeline variables is updated.

Jenkins Server and vRealize Automation Server Endpoints

vRealize Code Stream retrieves all of the existing Jenkins Server, vRealize Automation Server, and Team Foundation Server (TFS) endpoints from vRealize Orchestrator and adds them as new entries to the page at Administration > Orchestration Configuration > Endpoints.

The updated Jenkins server endpoint name is prefixed with Jenkins_EndpointName and the updated vRealize Automation server endpoint name is prefixed with Vra_EndpointName.

The format of existing task output variable values such as $CustomScriptName_OUTPUT are updated to ${StageName.TaskName.outputConfig} in the release pipeline during the upgrade.
